How Hot is YOUR Kitchen?? – Another cooking demo….

Apparently my kitchen gets so hot that my coconut oil gets, “liquid-y”…. Along with having a lot of fun with our cooking demos, I am also inventing new words, and if anything, giving my family yet another reason to laugh at me!! In this demo we make Savory Cauliflower Fried Rice, Pork Chops, and my […]

Everyday Paleo Pizza

Paleo Pizza

Last year a trainer friend of mine at Norcal turned me on to paleo pizza made with almond meal crust.  Although I like this pizza and the crust works, I wanted to find a way to make the crust DELICIOUS, rather than just a vessel for the pizza toppings.  With a few tweaks to the […]

Dry Rub Burgers and Sweet Potato Rounds

First – props to Jaden (my six year old) for taking all the photos for this blog post.  You rock J!!   This dry rub recipe works well on burgers but is also bangin’ on rib eye steaks and probably on chicken too (haven’t tried that yet, but could imagine it would be tasty…) Also, a […]
